The viral footage, which has been viewed almost 50 million times, shows Ortega passionately kissing her co-star Gideo Adlon. There’s no context for the scene save for Ortega smirking and asking Aldon, “ready?” before the intense lip lock.
Twitter users responses ran the gamut from “Did this happen on Wednesday or Thursday?” to “She’s literally queer in IRL what surprise is this” to “she a very talented actress fr” to “No way… Wednesday Is Suddenly Acting like Saturday” to “This should be turned into digital collectible for her fans to trade and monetize.” to my personal favorite, “Today’s Hollywood movies are promoting lesbians a lot which is wrong.” (lol.)
Ortega plays the role of Cairo Sweet in Miller’s Girl, a young student who falls into a controversial relationship with her teacher, Jonathon Miller.

Ortega rose to fame after starring as the iconic Wednesday Addams in the Addams Family spin-off that followed the life of Wednesday. Wednesday’s relationship with her roommate, Enid Sinclair, gave fans a queer vibe, leaving them hopeful the two of them would enter a relationship, but that never happened.
Our fascination with celebrities’ personal lives is as American as apple pie. There has been speculation that Jenna Ortega might be queer, but the 21-year-old star has not publicly spoken about her sexuality.
Miller’s Girl is in theaters everywhere. It currently has a rating of 33% on Rotten Tomato’s tomatometer and a 45% audience score. Its official description reads: “A talented young writer (Jenna Ortega) embarks on a creative odyssey when her teacher (Martin Freeman) assigns a project that entangles them both in an increasingly complex web. As lines blur and their lives intertwine, professor and protégé must confront their darkest selves while straining to preserve their individual sense of purpose and the things they hold most dear.”
